  • Call for papers: Behavioral Science & Policy Association Annual Conference

    On May 5-6, 2022 over 500 leading behavioral scientists, policymakers, executives, and press will join Eric Johnson, Ayelet Fishbach, John List, Ellen Peters, representatives of governments and behavioral units from U.S.A. Canada, U.K., Australia, South Africa and many others to gather for the 2022 BSPA Online Conference.

    All of the programming uniquely fit for digital will be hosted online with live streaming and interactive sessions from 11am-5pm (EST) on May 5th and 6th.

    BSPA seeks proposals by February 7, 2022 for short (TED talk style) presentations highlighting research in five thematic areas in which behavioral scientists could have significant influence on policy. These areas are based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and include:

    AREA 1: POVERTY AND WELLBEING [SDG-1 NO POVERTY, SDG-4 QUALITY EDUCATION, AND SDG-8 DECENT WORK AND ECONOMIC GROWTH]

    AREA 2: DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION [SDG-5 GENDER EQUALITY AND SDG-10 REDUCED INEQUALITIES] 

    AREA 3: GLOBAL HEALTH [SDG-3 GOOD HEALTH AND WELLBEING, SDG-2 ZERO HUNGER AND SDG-56 CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION] 

    AREA 4: ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY [SDG-13 CLIMATE ACTION, SDG-7 AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY, SDG-11 SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES] 

    AREA 5: ORGANIZATIONAL AND MANAGERIAL BEHAVIORS, STRATEGY AND LEADERSHIP, JUSTICE [SDG-16 PEACE, JUSTICE AND STRONG INSTITUTIONS] 

     

    Each short presentation session is designed to inform and influence academics, policy makers, and managers.  Presentations may demonstrate recent key research findings (potentially from multiple papers) with meaningful implications for policy and practice and need not present new work-in-progress. These presentations should not be highly technical.
